Tesla has announced that it replaced Arnnon Geshuri, vice president of human resources, with Gaby Toledano.

Toledano is a former executive at Electronic Arts.

The move comes during a time when Tesla is under intense scrutiny from the United Auto Workers Union.

Toledano assumes the title of Chief People Officer and will head up the human resources department. She reports directly to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

Tesla Welcomes Gaby Toledano

The Tesla Team

We would like to welcome Gaby Toledano, who has joined Tesla as Chief People Officer, leading Human Resources and Facilities, reporting into Elon Musk. Gaby joins Tesla after 10 years on the Executive Team at Electronic Arts (EA), during a time of transformation and growth. Prior to EA, Gaby led Human Resources at Siebel Systems. She has also held HR leadership positions at both Microsoft and Oracle and currently sits on four technology boards.

As Gaby joins Tesla, we would like to give a special thanks to Arnnon Geshuri, who has led HR at Tesla for more than eight years. Arnnon helped transition Tesla from a small car company that many doubted would ever succeed, to an integrated sustainable energy company with more than 30,000 employees around the globe. As Tesla prepares for the next chapter in its growth, Arnnon will be taking a short break before moving on to a new endeavor. We're grateful for all that he has done for Tesla.

We’re excited for Gaby to bring her experience and leadership to Tesla as we accelerate towards a sustainable future.
